Conservation group offering tree seedlings
MIDDLEBURY — The Otter Creek Natural Resources Conservation District is sponsoring its annual Tree/Seedling Program for area residents and cooperators. This program was developed for the convenience of area residents and to support ongoing conservation projects.
Possible uses for the seedlings are home orchards, windbreaks, Christmas trees, ornamental and wildlife habitat.
A partial list of trees and seedlings the district is offering are white pine, balsam fir, white cedar, white spruce, basswood, elderberry, lilac, apples and a very hardy peach. Sugar maple, red maple and white oak are also available. This year look for a greater selection of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and asparagus that thrives in heavy clay, and a limited selection of 6- to 8-foot maples.
Sale proceeds help support scholarships for Green Mountain Conservation Camp, Conservation Field Day for all Addison County sixth graders, resource information workshops, and planting trees alongside streams.
To request an order form detailing selection and cost, call 802-388-6746, ext. 126, or e-mail [email protected] Orders will be welcome throughout April but those received by April 10 will get priority. The district tree sale pickup will be held in Middlebury on the morning of April 30.
